The Second Wife is the compelling novel from bestselling author Elizabeth Buchan. What happens when the mistress gets her man? Against the odds, that's what happened to Minty. She stole her best friend Rose's husband Nathan and made him her own. But now that she's got what she wanted - marriage, kids, a family home - she's discovering a few things she didn't bargain on: the cold shoulder from Nathan's other family, her husband's middle age and growing distance...and accepting that first wives don't just go away. What's more, age brings one or two other problems for Minty. Problems that will lead her back to the one person she really doesn't want to face... The Second Wife is a compelling and heart-warming novel from bestselling author Elizabeth Buchan. Praise for Elizabeth Buchan: 'Gorgeously well-written - funny, sad, sophisticated' Independent 'Beautifully observed, with the insight and humour that one has come to expect from the author' Times 'Compelling, compassionate, and aglow with moments of laugh-or-cry humour' Mail on Sunday 'Buchan is a cut above the rest' Sunday Mirror Elizabeth Buchan is the author of twelve novels, including the bestselling and prize-winning Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman, That Certain Age and The Second Wife, all of which received rave reviews. She lives in London with her husband and children.
